littlebigone customers in South Yorks now part of Chess Telecom

Digital Region in South Yorkshire has a number of broadband providers operating on its platform, and as of 1st April it appears those people who had a contract with were acquired by Chess Telecom.

A message on facebook and letters arriving in the post appears to be how customers have learnt about the change. It is not clear what if any changes existing littlebigone customers will see, and we suspect the pricing shown on the Chess Telecom website is referring to ADSL2+ and FTTC via Openreach rather than pricing for the Digital Region platform.

We checked via twitter (@ChessLtd) and Chess Telecom confirm customers will see now price changes and the prices on remain valid for new signups.

would this take over allow a get out of contract situation, my friends had big problems with LBO as of late and they've made it clear they don't want to help him, hes in contract till September and wants to move to origin ASAP as even though he is not a customer of theirs they've already given him more help with his problems than LBO has, So if he can use this as a get out clause he would be very happy i mean id of though this would of counted as a contract change thx for advice

Not normally, and is why Chess appear to have kept terms the same to avoid this.

Very strange indeed. Looks like they finally managed to supply GEA type product afterall, as it looks increasingly like they are not going to get out out of PlusNet Partner who currently provide parts of their ADSL2+ network.
